DO your par­ents have a Christ­mas por­trait on the wall that makes you cringe?

Or are you of the gen­er­a­tion of fam­ily pho­tos fea­tur­ing big hair, flu­oro cloth­ing and way too big spec­ta­cles?

A new Christ­mas photo trend on of­fer at Robina Town Cen­tre is giv­ing fam­i­lies and friends the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate their own em­bar­ras­ing me­mories with its free Awk­ward Christ­mas Por­traits.

Robina Town Cen­tre mar­ket­ing man­ager Melissa Shaw said the con­cept paid trib­ute to the days be­fore dig­i­tal pho­tos and so­cial me­dia, when you had one chance to take a pho­to­graph and crossed your fin­gers, hop­ing it turned out well.

“It’s a good ex­cuse to dress up, have a laugh and cap­ture a hi­lar­i­ous mo­ment with fam­ily and friends,” she said

The photo booth has a pro­fes­sional be­hind the lens and a mul­ti­tude of props and cos­tumes.

But does have some 2018 tech – the pho­tos are emailed to you for so­cial me­dia up­load or print­ing. You can get your photo taken on Thurs­days from 5pm un­til Christ­mas at Robina Town Cen­tre.
